Dr. Rose Answers Your Eyecare Questions

Q: What is amblyopia?

A: Amblyopia is an acquired visual condition where vision cannot be cleared up with glasses,contact lenses or surgery. The eye looks normal but does not function normally and in fact could be blind.

3.8 million adults are blind or visually incapacitated due to amblyopia. For adults 20-70 years of age amblyopia ranks as the leading cause of one eyed blindness ahead of macula degeneration and glaucoma.
Amblyopia usually begins prior to the age of 4 years and is an important reason to get eye exams at 1 and 3 years old. Treatment at that time can stop amblyopia from developing. For adults with amblyopia , it can be treated with vision therapy to restore vision and function to the eye.
